Students become pen pals of nursing home residents
Woy Woy South Public School has started a pen pal arrangement between its students and residents of Hammond Care Nursing Home in Woy Woy.
"In Term 4, we are asking students if they would like to start a pen pal system where we can exchange notes, pictures, stories, jokes and share photos about our lives with the residents of Hammond Care," said principal Mr Matt Barr.
"We know Covid has been difficult for everyone and we are all thinking of our elderly community in this time.
"The Notes to Nursing Homes initiative kicked off with the Hammond Care residents and staff enjoying a beautiful morning tea.
"Many of our students would remember one of the residents Grandpa Fred, who has listened to hundreds of students read to him at Woy Woy South.
"We look forward to this relationship blossoming between residents and our students."
